In the Kitchen: Buying in Bulk and Unit Pricing

One of my favourite ways to save on food is buying in bulk (when it makes sense) and by looking at unit pricing.  I am not a stockpiler, I don't even have a deep freeze for my family of 4... However, certain things I know we will use up within a reasonable amount of time are always purchased in the most economical quantity!

Unit pricing is when you can look at the cost per unit (could be 100g, 1 item, etc.) so that you can more easily compare multiple products of different sizes.  For example, one package of raisins might cost $4.29 for 350 g.  Another might be $8.49 for 900g.  It's easy to look at it and think $8.49 is more expensive when in fact, for the quantity it's quite a bit cheaper.
